I'll try to get pictures of the actual machine up later today.

Private school around here uses them to cut their huge campus.

The hours seem exceptional low for a machine that's 7 years old??? :confused:
How is it that there are so few hours on it?

Actually I have not had this very long. I picked it up for a friend who then did not come up with the cash so I'm trying to turn it over. I would love to be able to keep it but my mowing business dosn't need anything this large, or nice.
I suspect that the last guy just had it for mowing his lawn, and because it's a neat machine, and that he found it to be a bit big for his needs so he just sat on it.
Well, here are some pictures of it.
If you are interested please let me know and I can get you some better up close shots.
If you have any questions please let me know.
Have a great day!

Surely someone's in need of this fine machine.
Feel free to make me an offer.
Have a great evening!

That's one clean tractor, not sure if it's worth $10K though. Front cuts were all the rage "back in the day" now all the commercial guys want are ztr's. I sold my Kubota F-2400 for $3K a few yrs ago to a homeowner with a really big lawn, none of the commercial cutter's were interested.

Could be. I figured it was worth close to this since a local dealer has a show model with similar hours for $14k and it is only two wheel drive. That one is newer in years ('07 I think) and has one of the larger engines, but I'm not sure that's any better since these 18hp ones seem to have plenty of power.
Also a beat Lesco 7400 with 4k hrs just sold at the auction two weeks ago for $4500.
That one also has the bigger engine then the one I've got for sale.
That's about all I have to go by for price as these aren't particularly common.
Do you know, is the bigger engine a big deal? Or is it mainly beneficial if you're running a large deck?

<Do you know, is the bigger engine a big deal? Or is it mainly beneficial if you're running a large deck?>
Sounds like enough h.p. considering the deck size and it's a diesel. Have you tried craigslist or any other "for sale" sites? Also consider making the price $9500., it just sounds better, imo. (old used car sales tactic) Good Luck

do you still have it for sale
05-16-2009, 11:39 PM
Yes it is still available. If you have any other questions or would like any other pictures please let me know and I will see what I can do.
Also feel free to make me an offer, I can't promise I'll take it but it can't hurt.

We ran one with a hard dump bagger and blower .The guy liked its capacity .remove rear weights and slide hard bagger on the two stud and put 4 bolts in rops /fops .We also had a soft bagger .We wore the thing out .but it had a zillion hours on it and still worked .

Front cuts were all the rage "back in the day" now all the commercial guys want are ztr's.
I know this is an old thread and I have never used a front cut mower but I was wondering why they have been replaced by the ZTR's? I would think a front cut deck would be easier to clean.

They are to big and cut like crap, Atleast the toro 220d we had did not sure about the kubota
